Color parents red over Crayola celebration of disabled transgender model

Nothing is sacred nor safe from the “woke” cultural revolution that celebrates sexual deviance, particularly when it comes to influencing impressionable young minds and many parents are seeing red after Crayola posted images of a disabled transgender model to its Facebook page, presenting the individual as a role model.

On Saturday, the crayon giant posted three images of Julian Gavino, aka the The Disabled Hippie Life Coaching, on Facebook describing Gavino as a “fashion model, writer, and activist who identifies as a transgender man” and was born with a progressive neurological condition. The post further noted that Gavino is “passionate about advocating for his respective communities.”

“Julian is determined to normalize disabled and trans bodies in the fashion world. He works with designers and brands on creating adaptive clothing and stresses the importance of universal design– clothing everyone can wear,” wrote Crayola, adding that Gavino was “Abercrombie’s first disabled/transgender model.”

“Julian says he truly believes you can connect to your soul and others through creativity,” the post reads.

According to Crayola, “He says, ‘You can do it through fashion, art, you can do it through color. Being a creator has allowed me to expand in ways I didn’t think I could. I think my disability kind of forced me into a spot where I had to look at things from a different perspective. When I felt frustrated, I would turn to art. It’s important to have outlets like that. I used to feel embarrassed about using mobility devices. This got me more interested in fashion. I felt out of control with what was happening to my body. So, when I started pushing the boundaries on what I would usually wear. It helped me cope. Now there’s probably nothing I wouldn’t try to wear or have fun with.'”

“This #DisabilityPrideMonth Crayola celebrates Julian and everyone like him for their passion and creativity,” the post said.

One FB respondent who is not a parent wrote, “Kudos to Crayola for being an inclusive brand. I’m a childfree adult who enjoys crayola products, but even if I did have children, I see no problem in this post. If you see it as “inappropriate” to have open discussions with your children about gender diversity, then your ignorance and transphobia are showing. No one said anything about ‘sexual’ content, it’s about him being comfortable to be himself and creatively express himself through art and fashion.”

Another user, added “Just when I thought I couldn’t love Crayon more. You have earned my brand loyalty with your inclusiveness. Keep it going!”

“Our kids don’t need to be pushed through media and this is messed up,” another user wrote. “I support LGBTQ but I don’t support pushing our children in these ways. JUST LET THEM BE KIDS.”

Another said, “I’m disgusted that you would push this on children!!!!! Have you not paid attention to all the companies that have gone woke. Check out Disney’s stock lately? Nobody wants this pushed on children,”

“Really inappropriate content for children. Usually I buy a ton of supplies to donate, this year we will be leaving Crayola out of the donation. Kids don’t need to be taught about sexual preference or changing genders while trying to color,” wrote another.

Twitter users also reacted to the latest example of the corporate queering of America — Caution: Adult Language

Whether the 137-year-old company that has produced products enjoyed generations of children will pay the price remains to be seen but hard lessons have been learned by other major American corporations that have promoted “woke” ideology and transgenderism and were badly burned for it.
